the guy actually makes a good point. a store manager would never leave the deposit bag sitting around, why should a tour manager? sounds like a real dumbass to me.
i can't speak for all of the details but things like money (unless cash was paid that night of a show) should be deposited the very next day in the bands bank account. Or the money should never leave sight of someone. it should be in a bang bag on someone or if in a hotel brought into the hotel and stored away for safe keeping. I know it sucks this shit happens but even if your pre-cautious, you have to take it to the extreme.
